A wealth tax is a simple but fair principle

A wealth tax is “a simple, and also fair principle”, it is Norway’s “public services (that) the government provides”, that has allowed me to become wealthy. We all benefit from the taxes we pay. We all benefit from taxes, that is the reason I support a global wealth tax, I’ve seen the benefits that can come from such a tax in Norway and see how it can be applied on a global scale.
